Editorial Reviews
. . . for modern seekers looking for a way to step into the larger ocean of ancient Christianity.
—(November 9, 2000)
This volume should be a part of any worship leaders's library. . . for regular, thoughtful devotions, and as a resource in times of trouble.
The Prymer will appeal to Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox Christians alike.
Journal Star
Those Christians who struggle with informal prayer but are uncomfortable with current liturgy will want to take a look at this book.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Webber, author of Ancient-Future Faith and Worship Old and New, has revived "the most widely used form of spirituality in the fifteenth century," the prymer used by laity for daily prayers, which were the foundation of lay spirituality until the Reformation. Webber has adapted the "Hours of the Blessed Virgin" to "Prayers and Readings for Every Day" and also includes a section of "Prayers for the Time of Grief." He offers margin space for readers to record their own thoughts and prayers alongside the formal ones, in keeping with the 15th-century English practice of ruminato, or introspective reader-reflection on the text. This book is an exciting restoration. (Oct.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Library Journal
Webber (theology, Wheaton Coll.) has translated and very lightly adapted the texts that formed the true, though little-acknowledged, core of Christian spirituality throughout the later Middle Ages and beyond: the Book of Hours and the Office of the Dead. Many of the utterances and prayers come from the Psalms, some from anonymous later medieval sources; all are inspired religious poetry and as satisfying as beads smoothed by human hands. Webber makes suggestions for use of the prayers in daily, weekly, or monthly cycles, but it is possible to get nourishment and pleasure from them by any number of methods. Of interest to the Christian seeker and the student of religion and spiritually alike. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
From The Critics
Centered in the ancient tradition of daily fixed-hour prayer, The Prymer: The Prayer Book Of The Medieval Era Adapted For Contemporary Use focuses throughout the day on the hours of Christ's passion and death. Designed for personal or communal use in a one-day retreat, a weekly cycle, or a thirty-day cycle of prayer, The Prymer also includes special prayers for the Christmas and Eater Seasons. The Prymer is exceptional and highly recommended to Roman Catholics, Orthodox Christian, and Protestant readerships.
